In this book, George H. Douglas has distilled the essence from Wilson's many writings on America. An active reporter and journalist as much as a scholar, Wilson ranged from Harding to Nixon, from bathtub gin to marijuana. Douglas here surveys Wilson's mordant observations on the roaring twenties, the Great Depression, income tax, suburbia, sex, populist politics, the Vietnam War, the Great Society, the failure of American scholarship, pollution of the landscape, and the breakdown of traditional American values. The Wilson who emerges from this survey is a historical writer with deep.

George Herbert Walker Bush, who was president from 1989 to 1993, died on Nov. 30; his state funeral in Washington . 30; his state funeral in Washington National Cathedral is today. As memorial services continue throughout the week, many are publicly reckoning with his one-term presidency. They’re about psychological portraiture, enabled by the artful use of Mr. Bush’s diaries - they’re surprisingly rich - and the author’s many probing interviews with Mr. Bush over the years.

Mr. Borovsky, I know that you wrote this over 12 years ago, and I understand that this was your first outing in the world of writing and illustrating children's books. But please, Mr. Borovsky, what the blazes were you thinking when you wrote this?
The artwork is fantastic - I found myself laughing as hard as the kids were, especially at the picture of grandfather's reaction to the elephant when it first spoke. In fact, both of the stars I gave you were for the artwork alone. I couldn't find any stars in my heart for the storyline, however.
For the uninitiated: George is a dog who belongs to a little boy named Peter, whose grandfather is a zookeeper. George went with Peter to school, so it's inevitable that the dog starts speaking one day. Peter keeps this a secret while George teaches the animals at the zoo to speak and read, as well. Eventually, the animals reveal their new abilities, and the various critters teach the others their own talents - the birds teach the snakes to sing, the own taught math, and the bears taught a dancing class. After a while, George appears to become bored with it all, and simply leaves. The other animals chart George's progress around the world (based, we must suppose, on the postcards he sends back to Peter), and two pages after George leaves, he's back again. End of book.
A prime example of an excellent idea with nowhere to go. Borovsky paints himself into an untidy little corner, and rather than work himself out of it, he simply creates an unnecessary deviation from the plot, and he and his agent are the happier for it. How Greenwillow Books was strong-armed into publishing this, I'll never know, but it's somehow nastily pleasing to see it's now out of print.

I have to disagree (ten years after the previous post was published...) Not every book has to have a super-exciting, action-filled plot. My children love this book. It has no particular surprises in it, but it made them think in lots of different ways: what if animals could talk? what if they went to school? Why does George love spinach-pie? They particulary enjoy the animal-school scenes: the tone-deaf snakes (every time we read the book, we have to sing at least one song in the way how the birds sing it and how the snakes), the bears in dance class, the giraffe with the map... My children are 3 and 4 years old and right now "George" is in the top ten. I even had to make a little bundle on a stick, like George has when he goes travelling... They also like the melancholic, but happy ending.
